Outlander


Published 1992


Outlander is an action driving video game with a post-apocalyptic theme. It was developed and published by Mindscape in 1992 for the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis and in 1993 for the Super Nintendo.

The game shares many similarities to the Mad Max film series, due to the fact that it was originally developed as "Max Mad" adaptation based on its sequel, but near completion Mindscape was unable to hold the rights to the license and the title was changed to "Outlander".

In Outlander the player drives along a post-apocalyptic road in either first-person view (Megadrive) or third-person (SNES). Bikers and trucks attack the player's car with gunfire or ramming. To fend them off a car window is displayed allowing the player to fire a shotgun to the left or right. The car is also armed with a forward-firing machine-gun. Enemy vehicles destroyed in this way result in an explosion that may damage the player's car.

The car's fuel is consumed over time, and the player may either stop to refill, or run out of fuel. In either case, on-foot gameplay ensues. In this section, the player must avoid chain or petrol-bomb wielding bikers, landmines, and armed hillbillies. There is also opportunity to collect health, fuel and ammo before returning to the car.

The player may also stop at towns, another on-foot section that allows resource gathering. Items include ammunition, food, water, fuel, surface-to-air missiles, armour, windshields, fuzzy toys, tires and geiger counters. The geiger counter is used to detect contaminated food.
